Curtain Coating Machine
with Air Knife Assist
In 2010 Precision Research was contracted by an Allergan Inc., an international medical company to design a new curtain coating machine machine for evaluating a range of complex liquids ranging fron 45 cPs to 25,000 cPs.
The client required the machine to coat liquids for research to determine which liquids would be suitable for both a final product and also if the process could be viable in a high volume production environment.
The development of the machine was a joint effort with Precision Research responsible for the overall system design and mechanical engineering, and all aspects of controls, electronic design and software provided by Advantage Automation.
Engineering, design, manufacturing and delivery was completed in 5 1/2 months.
